At The Dental Studio we can efficiently straighten your front teeth in as little as 6-16 weeks, giving you more confidence and a great smile!
What do we do?
Through revolutionary techniques we use a simple orthodontic appliance to straighten crooked or misaligned front teeth, achieving rapid tooth straightening in a fraction of the time than using traditional braces systems.
Tiny nickel titanium springs are able to maintain a high constant tension to straighten both top and bottom front teeth and fits comfortably in your mouth. If you do experience any discomfort, we suggest that you use a mild painkiller such as ibuprofen or paracetamol for the first few days of treatment.
Unlike other straightening treatments, cosmetic straightening is designed to be a quick, convenient solution. It’s particularly popular for adults who are looking to improve their smile without embarking upon more traditional orthodontic treatments and can provide a perfect solution to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted!
So how does it work?
A lingual coil spring puts pressure on the back of the teeth that need repositioning, it has a wire across the front of the teeth that reverses the same pressure. These components work together to “squeeze” the teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment. You do have the option of not wearing the appliance, however, the longer you wear it, the quicker the results! It is recommended that you wear the appliance for a minimum of 16 to 20 hours a day.
Your speech may be affected for a week or two whilst the aligner adjusts to your mouth and you acclimate to the appliance over time. You’ll be able to speak fine with them in place after this period. It is also worth bearing in mind that it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours.
